Does anyone know the hours of the post office on base?

Comment by Loren's Mom on Friday

My daughter graduated PIR 9/11. Started A school in GL...for ATT for her rate of STG AECF...she started classes on 09/21-said they did it by alphabet (started with alphabet backwards) ...said she should be finished week of Nov 9th then to C school

Comment by Alex's_Mom on Friday

Alex texted me last night to let me know that he would be "classifying up" in 2 weeks. I am guessing that that means that ATT classes will be starting then...

Comment by Anti M on Friday

Another hold is probable.  How long?  No way to know, depends on how many IC candidates complete, or have completed, ATT already.  End of the fiscal year can slow down the pipeline, although right before the holidays, they really try to push them through every phase of training.  

On the bright side, if he is still at Great Lakes over Christmas, he gets to take leave during the stand down.  Christmas leave can be a real luxury in the fleet for the new guy.

his rate is IC .... to add to the comment below.

Comment by Nuke&SnipesMom on Friday

Hoping someone has a bit of oldest son is in GL on hold for ATT. His PIR was 9/18....he will be in GL for A school after as well. He has no idea how much longer he will be on hold for ATT and once he completes ATT, is it possible/probable that he will be on another long hold for A school? Just trying to get an idea- for he and myself probably more so than him.
